Cher is sick with an "acute viral infection" and has postponed the start of the second leg of her "Dressed to Kill" tour, according to a statement posted on the website of the New York venue where was she was next scheduled to perform.
The pop diva is on full bed rest for a few days, per doctors' orders, since her weekend diagnosis, said the note posted on the Times Union Center website.
A Sept. 11 show set for that Albany arena as well a Sept. 13 gig in Manchester, N.H., are now on the books for Oct. 6 and 7, respectively. Tickets will be honored on the new dates, or fans can get a refund.
In March, Cher launched what she says is her final tour -- she also said that the last time she toured -- and found herself at Staples Center in L.A. in early July. Cyndi Lauper opened the show.
"For all the glitter and high-tech pageantry ... her concert felt reassuringly human, even low-key at points," the Los Angeles Times' Mikael Wood said in his review. "It gave you a sense of the woman beneath the bedazzled loincloth."
The tour has been taking its toll on the 68-year-old performer, who still knows how to rock those over-the-top costumes.
"Last nite was fun," she tweeted back in April. "Actually ALL THE NIGHTS HAVE BEEN FUN Am Resting, 3shows in 4 days is rougher than I remember Have bandaids on 6 toes."
Her doctor was also "a little annoyed" at the time that she was working the stage so soon after surgery late last year to fix a foot injured in a rehearsal accident in the late 1990s.
Still, she can't exactly blame the road this time around: The first leg of the tour wrapped in mid-July, going dark for the second half of that month, all of August and the first week and a half of September.
